Dear viewers,

Just three small questions re command in STATA.

1.Could I speicfy a precision level to certain digit for the outcome?Say 4-digit
after decimal point?

2.Could STATA display 0 before decimal point for the outcome?

3.How to use "if" for the string variables.For example,I have a variable
"nationality" having two values-EU or US.How can I construct a condition
started with if,like "if nationality==EU"?I know what I wrote is nonsenese to
STATA!

Thank you very much if you can help.Seems three small but tricky queations.

Greetings,

Xiaoheng Zhang(Kevin)
